Did they give any indication on time? The Y axis is so under powered with the single stepper and would do the upgrade in a heart beat.

I set the tension on the rails/roller to produce the recommended 1kg (10nm) required to move it.

I actually measured the torque required to move the Y axis once adjusted, and found it to be less than 10% of the rated torque of the stepper.

peterg1000, could be, but it makes it quite sensitive do get the "proper adjustment". While it might seem trivial to you, it seems like it isn't for most people. There's also a lot of people who will be very happy not to have to deal with the belt ever again.
